PROGRAMS

UNIFORM CLOSET

A program to reuse and recycle pre-loved uniforms. Donations are collected, organized and distributed all year! PTO offers a designated day before the school year begins for anyone to look thru and pick these gently worn uniforms. After that, uniforms are available upon request for the remainder of the year.

CHAIR: Amy Esper 

GREEN TEAM

This program organizes the planting, maintaining and harvesting of Southside’s garden. Thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers our entire school is enriched educationally thru this platform. The Garden is used as a tool for teachers and volunteer parents to create experiential learning in and out of the classroom from the  plants and vegetables these classrooms grow.

CHAIRS: Becky Angelo, Susan Rigopulos, Kim Rosebrock,

They will even have their new treasures wrapped by one of our many volunteers.
